sandbox

We had some sand in the wheel barrel when we were doing some landscaping stuff and Roman just LOVED it. He played in it with a shovel for well over a half hour. (a looooong time for him to do anything, always go go go) I am sure he would have played in it longer if we wouldn't have had to go to Lethbridge. He cried and cried and cried. Had tears streaming down his face. And not his usual I'm mad cry, a true sad cry. So we broke down and got him a sand box. He likes to play in it for five or ten minutes here and there, but of course isn't half as interested in it as he was with the sand in the wheel barrel. Why do I bother to get him any toys at all?

What a cute little sandbox. We'll have to come make some use of it with you when we are down. Alli loves the sand at the park, but every 2 seconds makes me wipe off her hands, and the she goes and plays in it again.
